One Library One Book Community Read

A heart-warming tale about an unlikely hero, Cooper Not Out by Justin Smith, is the Central West Libraries ‘One Library One Book’ community read this winter, and readers have the chance to meet the author. The innovative community reading program encourages everyone in the region to read and discuss the same book at the same time in Orange, Blayney, Canowindra, Cowra, Forbes, Manildra and Molong. Orange City Council’s Services Policy Committee Chair, Councillor Mel McDonell encourages everyone to read the book and share it with friends and family.
